Tage Andersen is a florist and artist. Exposé #10 features a video portrait of this fascinating flower enthusiast who has a boutique (also a mini-museum) in Copenhagen and a country estate, Gunillaberg, with a fabulous orangery in Sweden. Alongside his love of flowers and plants, Tage Andersen also creates works of art from vases to sculptures.
Tage Andersen: "I have never really felt like a proper florist since I’m self-taught. I’ve never been held back by things that weren’t allowed or by things you ‘had’ to do. I found my own style a long time ago, my own way of doing things. I get a lot of inspiration from my work; it’s not just my work, it’s my life. I work with an incredible variety of materials, in which flowers naturally play a significant role, but I can just as easily work with metal, glass, wood or fabric.”
